JavaScriptLA, part of HackBuddy.com, is among the best JavaScript meetups in Los Angeles and Orange County, but now 100% REMOTE (join from anywhere) for web and app development.

With over 4,000 members, we are the one of the best JavaScript LA and Orange County meetups to join for anyone interested in learning web and app development, finding employment and improving their skill sets to gain further momentum in the tech industry. We are now also 100% AVAILABLE ONLINE DURING COVID-19.

NEWS & UPDATES

NEW NAME, SMALL CHANGE BIG IMPACT!

Important Announcement! We are changing our brand to HackBuddy over the next few months. This is to help make the brand more understandable, given we’re not just reaching people in Los Angeles and Orange County anymore, we reach a MUCH larger audience!! Thank you!! So to help with all that a name change is appropriate. We will still continue to have “JavaScript” meetups and also use the name “JavaScriptLA” to help people still trying to figure out the changes, but with this name change we can also start talking about other cool languages like Python, Swift, Go and get into more aspects of software engineering! Yay!!

Major Changes

YouTube will now be:
https://youtube.com/hackbuddyorg

Linkedin:
https://linkedin.com/company/hackbuddy

Instagram:
https://instagram.com/hackbuddyorg

Twitter:
https://twitter.com/hackbuddyorg

Slack:
https://hackbuddyorg.slack.com (if you need to login again, but all of us cool cats use Discord)

Meetup:
Our original meetup URL, https://meetup.com/javascriptla will still be the same, for legacy purposes.
OC’s url is now: https://meetup.com/hackbuddyoc

Change is hard but we’ll work on helping everyone walk through this process.  Thanks for supporting the group and to the cool new changes!  Thank you for helping us become remote!  I think being remote and available to anyone regardless of location makes a lot of sense for this time period!

ABOUT OUR JAVASCRIPT MEETUPS (Now 100% ONLINE)
– JOIN US FOR THE NEXT MEETUP FROM ANYWHERE!

We have had well-known speakers at our meetups including Douglas Crockford, Chris Griffith, Leif Wells and Beau Carnes, and many more to come.  If you’re interested in attending a meetup in Southern California, you can join us in LA via the LA chapter, in LongBeach/OC via the OC chapter, or just subscribe to us on YouTube to follow us online and chat with us via Discord — we are an internationally recognized community!

If you have questions about our group, check out our FAQ section first, especially if you want to know what sort of skill level you need to join a meetup, (we help everyone at all levels).   Even though we are based in Los Angeles and Orange County, we still have people from all over the world following us and chatting with our members via Discord and Slack.   In addition, all our meetups are recorded and available to watch on YouTube (so definitely subscribe), and you can read our books and watch our tutorials from the comfort of your home (no matter where you are in the world).  

Want to speak for us?

We are looking for speakers of all backgrounds!  As long as you have confidence, we want you to speak for us!  By the way, even if you aren’t in LA or Orange County, you can still speak with our group over livestream, as well as send us content for our group to watch and be available for “AMA” (ask me anything) style chats with our community.  If you are interested, please send an email to info@javascriptla.net.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Over 4000 reasons to follow us today to keep up to date with news and upcoming events! 

We have daily growth in communities such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, LinkedIn, Discord, and Slack.  Don’t just learn to code, learn to code well and possibly get hired!  See you at a meetup or talk to you online!
